Solid Damascus steel
The Woodgrain Damascus steel ring is a striking wedding band that offers the strength of American-forged Damascus steel in a truly custom look. Unlike faux Damascus steel rings that are only etched with patterns, our Damascus steel rings get their pattern from the forging process.
Step 1: Start with High-Quality Damascus Steel
We source our Woodgrain Damascus steel from a small forges that specializes in custom patterns. The material is made in the USA.
Step 2: Cut the Ring
We cut the ring on a lathe in our Brooklyn workshop and then use hand tools to deburr it.
Step 3: Buff to a Mirror Finish
Giving the ring a mirror finish before the acid bath ensures the pattern's texture will be consistent.
Step 4: Acid Bath
Each ring's unique pattern is the result of how two steels were twisted and compressed as they were forged together. As the acid eats away at one steel faster than the other, the pattern is revealed.
Step 5: Polish to Perfection
Once the ring has fully etched, we neutrolize the acid, clean it, and carefully hand polish.
